    Your truck is looking good! Your's is about like mine, though all I've added so far is a non-Toyota bed mat. Moved my son out of his town house this weekend and those adjustable anchors on the sides turned out to be quite handy.

    Looking forward to seeing how they look on yours. I'm thinking I want to go with the same size on mine. You notice much difference in the way it drives and handles? Thanks.

    Night and day, doesn't wander on the road anymore.

    Speedo and GPS dead on now.

    Very happy.

    I took a SOS pad to the blue crap on the white letters and one pad and 10 minutes later, I ALMOST cleaned one B F Goodrich word. Damn that crap is tougher than it used to be.

    I went to the spray wash and wasted $2.50 not blasting a bit of super blue crap from a single tire.

    WTF do y'all used to get this junk off with.

    I'll got a wire wheel and drill motor if I have to use it. ;)

    Soooooooooooooooo, no pictures til the blue shite is gone.

    Been thinking about going up with it to get the Pre Runner look.

    Fat Bob's or ReadLift, is one better than the other.

    I do no off roading this is purely for aesthetics.

    Yep, that is a definite improvement in looks. Much better than the 215's. Think I'm going to have to go that route as well. Thanks for posting the pics.
